Search for the Idol Philippines recently introduced Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Vice Ganda, James Reid and Moira dela Torre as its panel of judges but there are fans who found the lineup somewhat disappointing. 

Jaya, whose name came up on the fans' list of artists that could've been better part of the show, defended the selected judges. "Kanya-kanya tayong opinyon. May mga taong hindi pa nga nappanood, hinuhusgahan na," the Queen of Soul said during the presscon of her 30th anniversary concert. "[The] bosses are very intelligent enough to pick the right judges for that show. Hindi nila 'yon ilalagay diyan kung walang gagawin."

She continued, "Bigyan muna natin ng chance... na mag-air. Let's watch, let's see. Hintayin muna natin kasi wala pa nga e."

Jaya added that the four have all the necessary backing to be a singing competition's jury. "Nandiyan si Songbird and si Vice, how can you go wrong? Si James naman, he's also a performer and entertainer," she said. "Eto rin naman si Moira, she's like the biggest artist now. How can you say she's not credible as a judge? She writes songs, she records. Dinadownload niyo nga sa spotify e!"

Jaya: At Her Finest The 30th Anniversary Concert is happening on April 3rd at Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World Manila.
